Books: Past, Present and Future

Witch Book by MKHall @FlickrI wasn’t going to sign up for any reading challenges this year.   Although I’m a book worm through and through, I didn’t think I’d have enough time to properly commit to reading.  Last year, it seemed I was only grabbing a few minutes reading in bed before the book would fall from my hands and hit me on the head.  Surprisingly though, I still managed to get through quite a few books.

Let me see. These are the books I read (or can remember reading) in 2011:

Fiction 2011

  • A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
  • Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
  • Midnight by Stephen Leather
  • The Medusa Amulet by Robert Masello
  • Flirt by Laurel K. Hamilton
  • The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman
  • Nightfall by Stephen Leather
  • Pale Demon by Kim Harrison
  • The Shanghai Union of Industrial Mystics by Nury Vittachi
  • Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
  • Dearly Devoted Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
  • Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison
  • The Anatomy of Ghosts by Andrew Taylor
  • Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday
  • Boob Tube by Mark and Lesleyann Corker
  • 50 Reasons to Say Goodbye by Nick Alexander
  • Life from Scratch by Melissa Ford
  • Soul Identity by Batchelder, Dennis

Non Fiction 2011

  • Hitler’s Occult War by Michael Fitzgerald
  • Supernatural by Graham Hancock
  • Yes Man by Danny Wallace
  • Utterly Wicked: Curses, Hexes & Other Unsavory Notions by Dorothy Morrison

There are other non-fiction books I read including a couple of ghost books, a book on shamanism, several Erich von Daniken books  and one by Colin Wilson but the names escape me now.  Then there are all the witchy and magic books I flick through but don’t read cover to cover.

As I wasn’t as rubbish reading as I thought, I’ve decided to join Magaly’s Pagan Culture Witchy Books Reading Challenge and The Domestic Pagan’s 2012 Pagan Reading Challenge.

I’m currently reading Dexter in the Dark, which does have a good supernatural element to it, and First Night by Gabriel J. Klein. Then I’ve got Garden Spells on my ‘next to read’ list. Oh, so many books, so little time.

    • The first two books in my fiction list have witches in them, as does the series written by Kim Harrison. Terry Pratchett also includes some witches. Apart from Kim Harrison (totally hooked), I don't go out of my way to look for books with witch protagonists. Should be fun, though, to include a few more :-)
